The summer television season is ending, and while there are some shows from the season that will live to see another episode, sadly, not all made the cut. Such is the fate of ABC Family’s “Mystery Girls.” Read on to learn more about this story.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), “Mystery Girls” will not be renewed for a second season, as ABC Family has stopped ordering episodes of the show. The newly cancelled show had not been getting high ratings, as compared to another new dramas from ABC Family, “Young & Hungry” and “Baby Daddy,” which are still going strong. An official statement from the network regarding the fates of its television shows and the official decision for “Mystery Girls” will be released later this month.

“Mystery Girls” followed two former television stars, Holly Hamilton (Tori Spelling) and Charlie Contour (Jennie Garth), who once had a famous detective show called “Mystery Girls.” One day, thanks to a chance reunion, Holly persuaded Charlie to join forces to put up a private detective agency called “Mystery Girls,” which was named after their old show.

Together with their assistant, Nick Diaz (Miguel Pinzon), and local police Detective Duane Freeman (Ryan McPartlin), they solved a wide assortment of cases, from a missing heiress all the way to going undercover at Holly’s old high school.

The series’ first season ran for ten episodes. Its tenth and final episode, “The Killer Returns,” aired on Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014.

The series saw the reunion of Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling, who once co-starred together in the hit ’90s television series, “Beverly Hills 90210” from 1990 to 2000.
